As Holy Biscuit artist in residence, Julia Tryon responds to how the Lindisfarne Gospels combine the artistic styles of different ethnic groups of the period to communicate a message of unity across the region. Over the residency period March-June 2013, Tryon has produced an exhibition of work reflecting the connections between the Gospels and Shieldfield. Through workshops, meeting local people and exploring the visual language of the area, Tryon explored the relevance of the Gospels for the people of Shieldfield: the elderly, students, immigrants, artists and business people.
